Annotation

Maria Lyon and Lily Boiten are Acheron Academy's power couple. Only one thing stands between them and their perfect future: campus superstar Delilah Dufrey. And Lily and Maria are willing to do anything to keep Delilah from winning the distinguished Cawdor Kingsley Prize. Together, Maria and Lily harness the dark power long rumored to be present on the former plantation that houses their school. When feuds turn to fatalities, and madness begins to blur the distinction between what's real and what's imagined, the girls must find a way to stop what they started.
